Both great science and great food will be on the menu at the welcome reception hosted by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Maximizing Access Committee, or MAC, at Discover BMB in March in Seattle.

Each year, the MAC provides funds for underrepresented students to travel to the society’s annual meeting through the Graduate Student Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award. Recipients of the 2023 awards will share their research in a poster presentation at the reception and meet the career mentors assigned to them as part of the award program.

The ASBMB welcome reception, also known as the MAC reception, is a longtime staple at ASBMB annual meetings. Many members look forward to it as an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues they haven’t seen in a year and to make new connections. Don’t miss the MAC reception at Discover BMB — a time to connect and reconnect, and learn about interesting research from the next generation of scientists.

At a previous ASBMB annual meeting, members of the Maximizing Access Committee and others celebrate the work of students and postdocs who have won travel awards to present their work.
